About the Artist
Based in
Horicon, WI

Todd Schabel is a contemporary realist oil painter who grew up in Central Wisconsin. He attended the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, where he was fortunate to study with the late Li Hu, who emphasized the need to learn strong drawing skills and the importance of working from life. Todd’s training mainly consisted of the portrait, the figure, and still-lifes, but due to his love of the outdoors and interest in travel, it wasn't long before he fell in love with the landscape, particularly plein air painting.

Todd has had the honor of receiving numerous plein air awards, such as Best in Show at Paint Cedarburg, W and Bluffstrokes, IA plein air events. He is represented by Gallery 1802 in La Crosse, WI and Bell Street Gallery in La Pointe, WI.
